The series consists of letters, petitions, reports, returns and schedules, certificates, accounts, warrants, legal opinions, instructions and regulations, proclamations and other documents received by the Civil Secretary of Upper Canada, 1791-1841, together with copies of some documents of 1766-1809. These were made for reference purposes, form a very miscellaneous series known as the Upper Canada Sundries. This arises from the extensive range of duties performed by the Civil Secretary, and from the custom of plurality, whereby an individual might hold several offices but custom and practice did not give rise to separate record-keeping systems for each office. The post-1841 correspondence received in RG 7, G 20 reflects the narrowing of responsibilities in the Civil Secretary's office in that period. .
